How to add a Facebook search engine to your BlackBerry OS7.1 browser

So I just thought I would give you a lil tutorial on how to search for people, pages, events or groups on Facebook using your BlackBerry browser. Why? Well I like to believe that Facebook search is a social search engine and if you wanna look for somebody that’s the one place to find them. Yes you could use the Facebook app, but I prefer this method as it gives a better search functionality and options.

BlackBerry 7.1 OS and New App Updates Now Available

The BlackBerry 7.1 OS update will begin rolling out from carriers around the world beginning today and over the coming weeks, and offers some great new features that we wanted to highlight here: Mobile Hotspot: Turn your BlackBerry 7.1 OS device into a Wi-Fi® router anywhere, anytime! The new OS seamlessly provides Internet access for up to five Wi-Fi devices, including laptops and tablets. Universal Search: For this new release, we wanted to focus on the intelligence of our system and our apps – in other words, we wanted to create an intuitive experience that does the thinking for you. For example, Universal Search now has a new auto-suggest feature that that intelligently filters Bing® search results to offer you a variety of relevant Web sites based on your search terms. BlackBerry® Tag: Share contacts, media and files, and even invite friends to BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM) through a simple touch. BlackBerry Tag unlocks near field communication (NFC) capabilities for everyday use and makes sharing a lot faster and much more personal. Wi-Fi® Calling (where available): With BlackBerry 7.1 OS, you’ll be able to make Wi-Fi calls using your carrier’s Wi-Fi calling service (aka UMA-lite or GAN-lite). Wi-Fi calling allows you to save your talk time minutes and make phone calls over any Wi-Fi network. Not all carriers offer such a service so check with your carrier for availability. FM Radio: The BlackBerry 7.1 OS update will let BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 and 9380 smartphone customers enjoy FM radio. The Curve models include a built-in FM radio so you can tune in to local FM radio stations. Simply plug in your headset to boost the reception (it acts as the antenna).

Poynt for BlackBerry updated to v1.8.4

Just over a month ago now Poynt for BlackBerry users received an update from version 1.8.1 to 1.8.3.  This update back in October gave users some added features such as being able to search offers by keyword or location, as well as being able to opt out of the recently released Child Search feature. However, this most recent update is somewhat of a puzzle.  The “change log” released with this update states a VERY descriptive “Bug Fixes”… After perusing through the app for the past day, I have yet to find any added features, so my assumption is that everything within this update is behind the scenes.  There were a select few users who were experiencing some force closing errors on previous releases, so this update could possibly address those. Either way Poynt is an excellent app for every BlackBerry user.  From the casual college kids searching for the closest bar, to the power business users looking for a place to take a client, this feature rich app does it all. If you currently have Poynt installed on your BlackBerry simply head over to App World on your device and click upgrade.  If you don’t have it installed, click HERE to get more info and to download.
